Breakthrough hand transplant by Spanish surgeons

Valencian Hospital in Initiating Hand Transplant Surgery In the Virgen del Consuelo hospital in Valencia physicians have carried out a pioneering hand transplant surgery on a guy who lost use of his hand that was only after suffering a stroke. The guy, who’d lost his left hand 40 years past, had not been able since enduring from the stroke which had paralyzed the right hand side of his right hand’s body three years back to utilize he. Pedro Cavadas headed a team of physicians who firstly converted the guy’s right hand into a left hand by altering the position of the thumb and then transplanted it in the guy’s stump where his left hand used to be, on the side of his body which can operate normally. The procedure, the just one of its own type on the planet, took place on 29th April. The individual will need to do some rehabilitation exercises during the following month or two and need to be able to utilize his ‘new’ left hand ‘fairly well’.
